We all live in a….is it stuck in your head now too? ;) When a dose of inspiration struck, Tali Burress of A Party Studio styled this Classic Yellow Submarine Birthday Party as a cute way to showcase some downright adorable party ideas! Polka dots & chevron stripes adorned the printables while a neutral palette of light gray & yellow created a subtle nautical vibe. And how could anyone resist a Make Your Own SUB Sandwich station?! Those little hot dog octopuses totally steal the show! :)

– DIY framed yellow submarine backdrop with banners + a tissue pom & streamer drinks table backdrop
– Large white balloons with monograms & tassels + ruffled yellow submarine silhouette
– Glittering yellow submarine chocolate covered Oreos + a simple chevron striped & polka dotted cake
